They are expected to be at the Veterans Freedom Park at 10:00am on August 2, 2017. Please take the opportunity to support and thank them for their dedication, hope to see you there!
Most Americans have heard the adage “Freedom is never free.” Events in recent years have proven the young men and women of our armed forces are paying the ultimate price in increasing numbers. We are all proud of our active duty personnel and their counterparts in the veteran’s community. How do we truly thank those whom we owe so much?
The Ride Around Michigan began in 2004 as a way for everyone to participate in honoring the sons and daughters of Michigan with three days of remembrance. The journey takes motorcycle riders through each of the 83 counties in Michigan. Each chapter within Forgotten Eagles® holds remembrance ceremonies to honor all those who have served and who currently serve our country. The Freedom Ride, done in conjunction with the annual Ride Around Michigan (RAM) is dedicated to our fallen brothers and sisters and the POW/MIA’s. The primary purpose for the RAM ride is to promote POW/MIA awareness, show support, respect to our veterans and to raise money for our Michigan Veterans that are in need. 100% of the proceeds raised will stay in Michigan. This years selected Charitable Organizations for the 2017 RAM funds wills be allocated to: Michigan Veterans Trust Fund and a veteran who is in need of a service dog. The ride begins in Isabella County and proceeds to Iosco County in Hale, MI.
